A Modern Rock
Vampire
Dance Theatre Production

"Blown away. The dance was artful, colorful and inspiring. To say the music rocked the house is an understatement!"

"From start to finish, a wild ride of jaw-dropping rock music and modern dance that both exhilarates and haunts."

"Fresh, modern and wildly energetic. Keeps the audience, young and old, engaged for the entire experience."

ABOUT THE SHOW

THE CASKET GIRLS

THE CASKET GIRLS is a modern rock dance theatre production. It debuted September 21, 2018 at the Center for the Performing Arts in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, presented by Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre.

Based on the lore of the historical "casket girls" who arrived in New Orleans from France in the early 1700's, the production brings their story and mystery to life. Vampires, voodoo, love and loss - THE CASKET GIRLS is unabashedly bold, loud and dramatic... and not your grandmother's ballet.
